Hello, I’ve just ordered a M2 15in Air refurb for delivery tomorrow and just realised I need to order adapters to use any of my old usb hard drives.

Are any of the cheap USB C to USB adapters fine that I can see on Amazon? Or do I really need Apple branded ones? Should I be looking for a certain transfer speed etc? Considering a hub so I could occasionally hook up a screen with hdmi and for SD cards.

Hoping to order something quickly for next day delivery so appreciate any advice! Thank you

You do not need a branded one - Although I have an Apple branded one, Ive also been using cheap compatibles for years.
